The Secret Killings Need to End: Take Action Now!


There is a secret war happening right now in Somalia that the United States government isn’t telling us about.

Over the last two years, the U.S. government has dramatically increased the number of air strikes with drones and manned aircraft against Al Shabaab, an armed group in Somalia. It has increased the number of people it is killing, and correspondingly decreased transparency about what it is doing. The U.S. government is failing to report all of its strikes in Somalia, and most importantly, hiding the civilian casualties that result.

Right now, the U.S. government claims that it has not killed any civilians in Somalia, but our researchers have found 14 civilians killed and eight injured in five attacks.

Demand that the U.S. government investigate and acknowledge civilian casualties and the war in Somalia now!
